Yep, there’s a Super Blood Wolf Full Moon on tap for tonight, and that’s its launch pad. The fun starts about 10:30PM EST / 7:30PM PST. [Image found in here.]
If I find the time, I’ll swing a wood at it and post the .gif.

Want a pet that can give you nausea, fever and intense pain with just one bite? Here you go.
Man distracts hungry polar bear from its prey, wastes its time and energy, just to make a video of his faux bravery. Meh.
On 14 January 2019, CNN’s racist legal analyst Areva Martin claimed radio host David Webb benefits from “White Privilege.” There’s just one little problem.
Fallen Astronaut is an aluminum sculpture of an astronaut in a spacesuit which commemorates astronauts who died in the advancement of space exploration. It is currently at Hadley Rille on the Moon, having been placed there by the crew of Apollo 15.
It’s the only art installation on the moon. Fourteen names are listed on the memorial plaque, but three are missing. The deaths of two cosmonauts were unknown to the western world, and one astronaut was accidentally overlooked.
And it’s a Beaver Moon, whatever that means.
SuperMoon is scheduled to peak at 8:52AM EST Monday (and no, I’m not gonna set my alarm). This full moon will be not only the closest and brightest supermoon of 2016 but also the largest since 1948, and the full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until Nov. 25, 2034.
The moon rabbit in folklore is a rabbit that lives on the Moon, based on pareidolia that identifies the markings of the Moon as a rabbit. The story exists in many cultures, prominently in East Asian folklore and Aztec mythology. In East Asia, it is seen pounding in a mortar and pestle, but the contents of the mortar differ among Chinese, Japanese, and Korean folklore. In Chinese folklore, it is often portrayed as a companion of the Moon goddess Chang’e, constantly pounding the elixir of life for her; but in Japanese and Korean versions, it is pounding the ingredients for rice cake [Wiki].

In case you missed it, it looked exactly like this:
Mike Collins, Jim Lovell & I [Buzz Aldrin] got a behind the scenes look at the Orion capsule being built at Kennedy Space Center. Like our bunny suits?
I shouldn’t have to tell you who these guys are or what they did, but all three have titanium cojones.
Lovell’s book “Lost Moon” is a can’t-put-down white-knuckle read, and was the basis for the excellent movie “Apollo 13.”

P.S. Tonight’s full moon is a “supermoon.”
